Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights Palette Review

Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights Palette Review

During Sephora’s VIB sale that’s currently going on, I decided I had to have the tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights Palette. It’s a gorgeous palette and I got it for 15% off, so that’s hard to beat! I wanted to get a quick review up for you before the Sephora sale ends on April 11 in case you wanted to pick it up on sale too.

Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights Palette Review

Overall, I like this warm-toned palette. I’m really happy that they included two matte shades that work well with the shimmery shades.  The palette design is slim and light, making it perfect for travel. I wish that the names of the eyeshadows were embossed on the palette, but that’s something that always bugs me.

I really like Caparinha Cocktails, Oceanview and Tropical Sunset and they work nicely together. The texture of Espadrilles is good and it makes for a great matte contour.

What do you think of the Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights Palette?

      I really like that sea green. I’m a huge fan of Tarte.

        I adore them too :)

      Such a pretty palette. It looks perfect for Spring and Summer. Loving the bronze and teal like blue shades a ton. Great post.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Glad you like it!

    • Noelle

      This is so beautiful. I love this.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It really is well thought out

    • Norah Salazar

      Jade is a pretty shade, all the colors would not work for me personally but it is a nice palette for fair skin ladies :)

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I really like Jade, which is surprising because it leans green rather than blue. I tend to prefer teal blues

      How cute is that packaging!?

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        It’s so happy and tropical

    • deathbyglitter

      These colors look beautiful together! I love how they included matte shades that allow for a truly complete eye look with one palette. The packaging is stunning too. Gorgeous! :D

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Me too! I almost always need at least one matte shade for my looks

    • BeautyJudy

      This is beautiful but I think I might skip this one! I love Oceanview though. Great swatches.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Glad you like them!

    • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

      Such pretty earth-inspired shades! I’m still loving the Be Matte nificent palette though and I came back with quite a haul from Sephora on Monday

    • Cosmetic Sanctuary

      The colors look gorgeous, but I don’t think I would reach for it much.

    • http://www.geniabeme.com/ Eugenia

      Looks pretty! I hate it when the names of shades aren’t printed on the front for easy reference!

    • cindyprimebeauty

      I haven’t received mine from Sephora yet, but from your swatches, I’m gonna love it!

    • Kelly R

      Oh, these look amazing. But I don’t think they would really look that great on me.

    • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

      Those are all really nice beachy shades. I can see those working great for a breezy Summer day in Florida.

    • http://www.honeygirlsworld.com/ Honeygirlk

      the shades look great and I’ve been really eyeing this palette but just haven’t decided to get it. I guess i have so many similar shades in other palettes, it’s hard for me to see spending the money on it.

    • Anastasia

      I’ve been eyeing this palette, but not sure if I need it. It’s pretty, but I haven’t decided yet if the colors are unique enough.

    • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

      I was debating on this but in the end I passed because it reminds me of a smaller version of the Aqualillies palette!

    • http://www.everydaybeautyblog.com/ EBBlogAshley

      Great review. I think I am going to pass becauase it reminds me of a few palettes I have already.

    • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

      These shades just scream my name. Love the palette!

    • marciaf

      I love all but Espridrilles. For some reason I don’t do well with mattes like that. The others are great though.

    • Betzy Carmona

      The palette is perfect for spring and summer

    • FabZilla_Kath

      I like the colors in this palette. Boo my local Sephora, I don’t think I’ve spotted this last wknd

    • http://www.cosmetically-challenged.com Melody Robinson Wright

      Not sure if I’m a fan of this palette. It seems to have limited use due to the colors but it’s pretty nonetheless.

    • http://beautylitfromwithin.blogspot.com Nidia Doherty

      I love Tarte shadows, but what is it with every palette for this summer being all browns and one blue? It’s like all the companies got the same memo! lol

    • NVioleta

      Gorgeous palette…now if only Tarte could look up the proper spelling of caipirinha.

    • http://www.citizensofbeauty.com/ Citizens of Beauty

      I love, love, love the oceanview shade! Its absolutely stunning.

    • http://www.clevergirlreviews.com/ Clever Girl Reviews

      Too warm for me but lovely to look at!

    • Lorrin Massengill

      The packaging on this palette is gorgeous! I feel like a lot of the shades are dupable though, including that blue everyone keeps including in all their palettes. :/

    • Jamie C.

      Caparinha Cocktails and OceanView are the most beautiful shades in this palette and very summer appropriate.
